meh... I'll have to disagree. Listening to music is merely a crutch to the next concert? is it just the concert experience that you really love? we are very different if that is so...

Frankly i dont find the concert to be the supreme experience or the most objective way to analyze the music, in fact i think it makes analyzing the music much more subjective.

While i think your analogy does hold maybe some merit, most people listen to music much more frequently than they experience it live. And hence, the opinion based on solely listening to the music should hold a good deal of validity, especially as most of us criticize based on solely listening.

I've been turned off by the music scene, being a dead head who isnt much into drugs or bands that are particularly lack luster (and having lost many friends to the worthless scene), my music world is typically on my own or with a few friends. This is part of why seeking out concerts is near the bottom of my list and why i feel the concert experience should be left for another argument or outside of musical analysis or within the context of live musical experiences.

I understand your opinion.

I do not go to concerts for the party, I go for the music. I go to see the performers in their element and to hear the unadulterated tones from their instruments and voices. Frankly, most shows I've seen don't really translate to tape. Thus the "you had to be there" element of trying to help a non-attendee understand this music.

I'll just say this and leave it alone. The live performance is the reason why these bands exist. It is their function on the planet.

that i will agree with, but i believe that all does stem from a love of listening to music and not solely just the love to perform.

But i just cant help to argue, it is my sole function on the planet lol.

And its refreshing to engage in what i feel is a good musical argument/discussion, i wish it happened here more.

Hey Wisconsin,

I thought we were done with this, but my Yahoo Horoscope for today:

"Live music is a great way to fire up a romantic relationship, so if you're working on building a connection with someone you're attracted to, take a look at upcoming concerts in your area. You'll find a nice surprise. Get tickets as soon as possible -- any hesitation, and you could miss out on a great experience. Even if you're not working on a relationship right now, taking yourself out on a nice date is a great way to remind yourself how special you are."

Too f*cking funny!

Just to get some fall 72 hype in. These jams over the latter half of 72 and early 73 just take me beyond any concert or any music. This is what music is all about to me, and cant go wrong with this easy link. I suggest finishing the jam, its got a great > me and bobby mcgee > other one on top.
